I need to buy one for 8MM wires.
Any recommendations that don't break the bank?
I have a MSD tool that works well.
You should've gotten 7mm wires.....The tools are way cheaper!
Here is one I've used. I buy wires with the spark plugs ends installed, use this tool to crimp the distributor clips.
They suggest using a vise but I've had good luck using a Channel Lock right in the engine compartment.
and they look so much better on traditional cars, too
It's an OT vehicle.
I bought a Pertronics crimp tool set to make plug wires. Works well and use it on all my crimps now...love it.
I believe I ordered mine from Summit while trying to get the bill above a hundred bucks to get free shipping.
Yep the pertronix tool kit is the very best available !!!! Have used one for a few years .....worth every dime ...
I also use the MSD crimping tool, it makes factory like crimps.
Used these for years https://www.ebay.com/c/1624643975
I’ve worn a few set of those out.
Search up my tech thread trick for getting the boots on.
